Drum Blenders Blending Bulk Materials
Mixomat drum blenders are used in the chemical, pharmaceutical and food industry for blending bulk materials.
They are produced by Fuchs and ideal for not optimally free-flowing powders and granules the company states. The Mixomat drum blender program is modularly designed and includes blenders for all types of container sizes and applications.
The laboratory blender Mixomat A is ideal for carrying out on-demand blending using containers of 3 to 26 litre capacities with a maximum working load of 25 kg. This blender is fitted with the same characteristics of the large-sized drum blenders and can be directly used on site or in laboratory environment. The Mixomat A can also be fitted with a second drum holder and is, as an option, available as comfort series or ecoline version. The blending drum is filled to a maximum of 70% of its capacity and rotated around its own axes during a preselected blending time. Because the blending drum is mounted at an inclined position on the drum holder, the blending effect is three-dimensional. Blending is carried out gently and free of residuals.
The Mixomat A comfort series is controlled by a PLC (Siemens Logo 8) and includes a HMI colour 4” touch screen, a main and an emergency switch, a speed regulation from 7 to 35 rpm, programming of the blending time and recipes. The lower cost ecoline blender version includes a main switch, a start and a stop switch. A powerful 230 V single-phase DC geared-motor drives the blender by means of a roller chain. The blender is supplied with a 3 m mains cable without plug.
